Yesterday, 10/29/17, I observed a male Black-headed Grosbeak flying high over Washington Pass, Okanogan County.
And, after 30 years, despite spending many many days hiking/climbing/camping in their habitat, chasing flybys that could have been, and enduring too many times to count "it was just here a minute ago!", I finally observed a cracking male American Three-toed Woodpecker, feeding, vocalizing and actually drumming while I was walking the snowy road to the Washington Pass overlook.
Now, I only need Red-headed to complete my North American woodpecker portfolio!
